They’re MUTANTS dammit!!!


There was a lot of rumors that a movie reboot of TMNT: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would happen. What people didn’t see coming was Michael Bay ruining a lot of 80’s childhood memories. Recently, it was announced that the characters created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird would get a makeover. 

Michael Bay said that the Turtles that us 80’s kids loved growing up would now be from an Alien Race. ALIENS!?!? A lot of angry fans went online as soon as that announcement went viral. Bay insists that fans shouldn’t be worried about it. 

But come to think of it. Kids who grew up in the 80’s would be the ones most frustrated about this announcement because the best cartoons came out in the 80’s. All the greats came out during that magical decade. Thundercats, G.I.Joe, Voltron, Transformers, He-Man, and even the Care Bears. 

GEEKS in general are kids at heart. Destroy the good memories and you’ll get a lot of enraged adults. That’s what Michael Bay did by changing the Turtles into Aliens. What made them cool was how they mutated into human form. It was the mutagen/ooze that made the origin special. The argument is that if the turtles now come from an alien race, then more turtles can appear. But as for me, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael are special as a foursome. (Exclude Venus) Plus what would the weapons of the new turtles be? You’ve already got the sword,bo, nun-chucks and sais. Stars!? Spears!? Ewww… 

As far as I’m concerned, these producers still have to change the details. They’re MUTANTS!!! Not Aliens!!! Leave the 80’s kids alone!!!

    Also, what’s worse is there’s now talk about a marketing-driven name change. Supposedly, they’re not going to be called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles anymore. Simply… “Ninja Turtles”.
